November 24, 2020 – The Sanibel Historical Village will be taking part in the reimagined Luminary Week December 4 through 11. The Village will be decorated for the holidays, and the museum store will be offering a 10 percent discount on its wide variety of books.


“We’re so happy that Luminary will still take place during this difficult year,” said Executive Director Emilie Alfino. “Our village is especially charming this time of year decked out in its holiday finest. We hope people will come and feel the excitement of the season and have the added bonus of 10 percent off our books.”


The Village carries a wide variety of books, most featuring the history of Sanibel. Some of the titles include Sanibel’s Story, Art Calusa, My 92 Years on Sanibel (Francis Bailey), Postcard History Series: Sanibel and Captiva Islands, The Story of Sanibel Island, The Sea Shell Islands, and many from the Images of America series: Ding Darling, Pine Island, Naples, Florida Lighthouses, and more.

Sanibel Historical Museum and Village is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. The Sanibel Historical Village is located at 950 Dunlop Road (next to BIG ARTS) and there is handicap access to eight of the nine buildings. Admission is FREE for SHMV members and $15 for non-members (adults ages 18 years and up).  For more information, call 472-4648 during museum hours or visit www.sanibelmuseum.org.
